Here we have a really lovely 2013 Les Paul Standard finished in glorious Desert Burst, with a AAA maple cap. This guitar has all the whistles & bells that you need, offering a compound radius board giving you 10″-16″ radius. Including full twin pickup coil tapping & phasing, as well as a True By-Pass switching to allow you to drive the bridge pickup directly through the amp, thus giving you a pure unhindered signal, by-passing the tone & volume controls. She does have a scar on the rear, which was left by a guitar stand, where the rubber reacted with the nitro & that is reflected in the price, but aside from that she is in really lovely allround condition & comes with her Gibson case & booklet.
The 2013 Gibson Les Paul Standard combines some of the vintage features of the original Les Pauls with modern design twists, and the result is a superbly balanced instrument that still delivers classic Rock’n’Roll tone.
Premium Tonewood and Original Features
By using a mahogany body topped with AAA flamed maple, it sets the foundation for classic rock and blues tone, but with this 2013 model it employs modern weight-relief in the body for a supremely comfortable action. Combined with a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard, the natural tone is warm and rich, much like the older Les Pauls of the 50s and 60s. She has a 60’s Tapered Asymmetric neck and a 10″~16″ radius which makes it so playable. The Burstbucker Pro pickups take the classic PAF pickups with their smooth low to mid gain response and crank them up a notch – These are PAFs with attitude! By using a new Alnico 5 magnet over the traditional Alnico 2 you get more bite, more attack and more gain with less noise.
New in 2013 sees the re-introduction of the original locking Grover tuners, back to basics so you can tune reliably and comfortable in a matter of seconds. The traditional stoptail bridge ensures quick and painless string changes and vintage style, used since the dawn of the original Les Paul many decades ago.
